Title: Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years (SNMY)

Presenter: Praveen Krishna, Sarah Redfern High School

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: This Research Project is designed to be used in Middle School with Year 7 through to Year 8 in order to build learning and teaching resources to support mathematical reasoning. The goal is to improve student outcomes in relation to multiplicative thinking and proportional reasoning in Years 7 to 10. Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years (SNMY) materials help us to identify student learning needs; deepen teacher knowledge in this domain; and improve teacher responsiveness to student learning needs. The Learning and Assessment Framework (LAF) is a key resource for teachers. It is a hierarchy of key ideas and strategies related to the development of multiplicative thinking, expressed in a way that is accessible and useful to teachers.
